In Loving Memory On Monday, February 6th, the world lost a selfless, compassionate, loving, humble, funny, and generous husband, father, brother, and friend. He is probably organizing heaven right now, labeling cupboards, arranging drawers, and offering advice on how to keep a clean and systematized garage. He found his piece of paradise in Kamas, where he could wear his cowboy hat in the summer, his Stormy Kromer in the winter, and ride his tractor or his mustang Shelby. He fell in love with hockey, became an advocate for girls' hockey in Utah, and created a rink in his backyard, so he and Alice could skate. As a ski patroller at Solitude, he picked up the nickname Buzz. Indicative of his energy, the name stuck. He completed 20 tasks in the amount of time it took us to complete one. If you needed anything, literally anything, he would provide. He was a loyal friend and animal lover. He volunteered at the National Ability Center, and organized large animal rescue classes and clinics. His hunting dogs were always by his side; he loved the challenge of hunting chukar, especially with his "hunting crew" at the Humboldt Hunt Club. Seventeen years ago, he joined the Park City Fire District. It was a relationship of true brotherhood. He loved going to work. He was most proud of what he considered his biggest accomplishment, his daughter Alice. Everything he did, he did for her. He gave unconditional love to his family and friends. He was a devoted husband, father, brother, and friend. He is gone, but we will love him always, and forever. He leaves behind his wife Elaine, his daughter Alice, his brother Mark (Christine), his sister Chelle (Vince), nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, in-laws, friends, hunting buddies, neighbors, and too many others to mention. A service will be held to honor Kurt on Thursday, February 16th at the Eccles Center in Park City at 3:30, followed immediately by a Celebration of Life at the National Ability Center (bring your cowboy boots and hats). In lieu of flowers, a Kurt Peterson Memorial Fund has been set up through gofundme.com , to go towards firefighter mental health initiatives, a cause which Kurt championed.
